CSU in Burkina Faso: Researchers present findings to influence decision-makers

From March 2019 to October 2021, a research project on the successful implementation of universal health coverage in Burkina Faso was conducted by researchers from several institutions in collaboration with the Ministry of Health. The research project was entitled ” production et utilisation de données factuelles pour l’aide aux décisions dans le cadre de la couverture sanitaire universelle au Burkina Faso “.

The research was carried out by researchers from the Institut de recherche en sciences de la santé (IRSS) and the Institut panafricain de recherche sur les médias, l’information et de la communication (IPERMIC), in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, and funded by the European Union.

To arrive at their results, as in all research work, the IRSS and IPERMIC researchers asked themselves a number of questions. The list of questions asked includes, among others, ” how do people participate in and support the CSU process ? What are the coping strategies for healthcare staff, particularly at the CSU ? What can be done to increase the uptake and retention of community-based health insurance (CBHI) ?
